2020 has been less than ideal for everyone. We all know this. So I wanted to go through the photos I've taken this year to make something that paints this year differently. There are over 100 photos here. Don't open it unless you have unlimited data. And if you don't have unlimited data; get unlimited data.
I am so sick of this stupid pandemic, the stupid government's constant nonsensical reaction to it, and stupid people for going about their stupid lives as if everything is fine, and making the situation worse. I've really had enough today.
Does every single year-end list of whatever need to start with the phrase "2020 sucked, but here's a list of...". Can one person not come up with something more imaginative?
Got a squirrel feeder for the fence outside our living room window because the squirrels like the fence.
We watched Have I Got 30 Years For You on iPlayer tonight. Maybe it's the fact that there's really not much to be proud of these days, or maybe it's the fact that I've never been terribly proud of being British, but it made me feel quite proud to be British.
We're very fortunate to be able to have comedy like this. And even though, right now as everything's on fire, it feels a bit like being grateful for the warmth, it is what it is I suppose. Make hay while the sun shines, and toast marshmallows while the world burns.
I can't tell you how many times I've looked at this view, and I still see something different.
I've wanted a macropad for ages, and the timing was right on this one so I've gone for it! Screen; check, rotary; check, stacked acrylic; check. It also has LEDs and a piezo buzzer! Looking forward to annoying the entire world with that one.
Anyone: [something to do with Arrested Development]
Me: Well I guess I need to rewatch all of Arrested Development
This has been one of the slowest months of my life. The more I tried to get done, the more got piled on, the more frantic I got!
Went for a nice walk today. It was pretty cold but it's nice for clearing your head. I miss taking pictures.
I love writing, and I love pens. Any stationery really. But what I really love is a fancy fountain pen.
However, what I write best with is a £1 Bic biro. Absolutely typical.
Lots of pictures of me on my phone the last couple of weeks. I think I might finally be going insane.
I'd been looking forward to the new Palm Reader record, Sleepless for what seems like ages. They have a great blend of aggression, melody, and emotional intensity that hits a real sweet spot for me, musically. It's quite unusual to get all three in a band. The track, False Thirst, in particular is one of my favourite songs of the year so far.
We give Sudo toilet roll tubes to carry round. No idea why he likes them so much but he seems to! Someone gave him this today and I think he thought he'd died.
There's a time and a place for ROMs. With original hardware and software getting more and more expensive, they're the only reasonable option for most people. But part of the fun for me is in messing about with stuff!
Sea was wild today. And then it rained forever and we watched movies and ate curry and I had caffeine too late and now I'm wide awake at 1am.
On a call today, we were asked to complete a survey afterwards, and give a rating out of 7. Seven. I would like the opportunity to rate that rating scale.
